    Blue Underground: Blu-ray and DVD legends

    Y'know, I thought that was going to be it once Lustig re-released all the titles he sub-licenced to Anchor Bay, and pretty much said nothing new was in the offing for the immediate future. Then they up and switched their focus to Blu-ray and now look at the company! It's like the Criterion of Cult cinema...only better, as the majority of their Blu-rays are region free for us dweebs in non-Region A land.

    Everything I've bought so far has been outstanding -- New York Ripper, City of the Living Dead, The Bird with the Crystal Plummage (Storaro's useless Univisum ratio? I think not!) and Vampyres. All exemplary purchases for the cult fan.

    We've got what appears to be the definitive Deep Red release coming -- the best Inferno transfer available -- what promises to be the definitive Torso edition -- and of course the muched hyped super edition of Zombie later in the year.

    Can Lusting and crew do no wrong? Btw, for anyone who has the Salon Kitty BD, let me know how it is as it's one I'm thinking to adding in with my next US order in future; which will undoubtedly be made up entirely of Blue Underground BDs.

    I do think Deep Red could have used more extras but the transfer is top notch and there are no obvious mistakes in the presentation - that's what matters most.

    Maniac didn't floor me, looked soft and too bright, and Uncle Sam had some DNR problems, but those titles aside, everything else they've released on the format so far has been awesome.

    I'm looking forward to the Torso SE and to this one....

    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    Oh and I hope they reissue the Mondo Cane boxed set on Blu. THAT would be awesome.

    The Cat O' Nine Tails HD transfer is another winner. It looks fucking awesome.

    I will agree, Blue Underground rarely shits the bed on Blu. Mondo collection on Blu..yes please!

    Well, I don't have that boner you have -- but I sure am looking forward to the disc. Both versions, on one disc! I'll be able to bin my Shameless DVD soon

    The 10th VICTIM disc look interesting, even if I haven't seen it.

    Anyone perplexed by the strange aspect ratio/cropping issues on the Arrow release might want to get BU's Bird With the Crystal Plumage BD while they still can. It's out of stock but Diabolik has some copies left at a reasonable price here.

    Long gone. This one is going to start going for stupid money very, very soon. Glad I got mine - just wish I had ordered a few extra copies!
